Bhayani Nursery & Primary School Library

This one room library serves the Bhayani school. Many of their books are old and outdated, they could really use some updated material. We do understand how difficult that can be. The school has a decent computer lab, however they do not have Internet. It would be very valuable for the students to have Internet connectivity. They won the Maktaba library award for the year 2012 and 2013.

This school serves children from all range of society including many orphans. The management is obviously sincere and wants to do good for their community. The library and school runs on donations form various sources. This is a very touching project that is certainly worth supporting.
